The BRI S/T module requires an external NT1.
The BRI U module does not require an external NT1.
NT1 = Network Termination 1.
CSU = channel service unit.
ATM = Asynchronous Transfer Mode.
HSSI = High-Speed Serial Interface.
Cisco 3600 Series Interface Numbering
Each individual network interface on a Cisco 3600 series router is identified by a slot
number and a unit number.
Slot Numbering
The Cisco 3600 series router chassis contains two or four slots in which you can install
modules. You can install any module into any available slot in the chassis.
As shown in Figure 1-1, the slots are numbered from 0 to 3, as follows:
1-4
•
Slot 0 is at the bottom right (as viewed from the rear of the chassis), near the power
supply.
•
•
•
Slot 1 is at the bottom left.
Slot 2 is at the top right, above slot 0.
Slot 3 is at the top left, above slot 1.

Unit Numbering
Cisco 3600 series routers unit numbers identify the interfaces on the modules and WAN
interface cards installed in the router. Unit numbers begin at 0 for each interface type, and
continue from right to left and (if necessary) from bottom to top. Modules and WAN
interface cards are identified by interface type, slot number, followed by a forward slash
(/), and then the unit number; for example, Ethernet 0/0.
Figure 1-3 shows a router with a 2E 2-slot module in slots 0 and 1. Two serial WAN
interface cards are installed in the module in slot 0. One serial and one ISDN BRI WAN
interface card are installed in the module in slot 1.

Note The 2E 2-slot module described in this example provides both an attachment unit
interface (AUI) and 10BaseT port. Only one of these ports can be used at a time. The
module automatically detects which port, AUI or 10BaseT, is in use.
Voice Interface Numbering in Cisco 3600 Series Routers
Voice interfaces are numbered differently from WAN interfaces described in the previous
section, “Unit Numbering.” Voice interfaces are numbered as follows:
interface type chassis slot/voice module slot/voice interface
If you have a four-channel voice network module installed in slot 1 of your router, the voice
interfaces will be:
•
Slot 1, voice network module slot 0, voice interface 0, referred to as voice 1/0/0 (closest
to chassis slot 0)
•
•
•
Slot 1, voice network module slot 0, voice interface 1, referred to as voice 1/0/1
Slot 1, voice network module slot 1, voice interface 0, referred to as voice 1/1/0
Slot 1, voice network module slot 1, voice interface 1, referred to as voice 1/1/1 (farthest
from chassis slot 0)

Cisco 2600 Series Interface Numbering
Cisco 2600 Series Interface Numbering
Each individual network interface on a Cisco 2600 series router is identified by a slot
number and a unit number.
Slot and Unit Numbering
The Cisco 2600 series router chassis contains one slot in which you can install a network
module. This is always slot 1.
Unit numbers identify the interfaces on the modules and WAN interface cards installed in
the router. Unit numbers begin at 0 for each interface type, and continue from right to left
and (if necessary) from bottom to top. Modules and WAN interface cards are identified by
interface type, slot number, followed by a forward slash (/), and then the unit number; for
example, Ethernet 0/0.
Figure 1-4 shows a router with a 2E 2-slot module in slot 1. One serial and one ISDN BRI
WAN interface card are installed in the module.

network modules in Cisco modular routers, and includes the following sections:
•
•
Safety Information on page 2-1
Required Tools and Equipment on page 2-4
Safety Information
This section contains safety warnings that you should be aware of before installing a
network module in the router.
Safety Recommendations
Follow these guidelines to ensure general safety:
•
•
•
•
Keep the chassis area clear and dust-free during and after installation.
•
Wear safety glasses when working under any conditions that might be hazardous to your
eyes.
•
Do not perform any action that creates a potential hazard to people or makes equipment
unsafe.
Put the removed chassis cover in a safe place.
Keep tools away from walk areas where you or others could fall over them.
Do not wear loose clothing that could get caught in the chassis. Fasten your tie or scarf
and roll up your sleeves.
Preparing to Install Network Modules 2-1
Safety Information
Safety Warnings
Safety warnings appear throughout this publication in procedures that, if performed
incorrectly, may harm you. A warning symbol precedes each warning statement.
Safety with Electricity
Warning Before working on equipment that is connected to power lines, remove jewelry
(including rings, necklaces, and watches). Metal objects will heat up when connected to
power and ground and can cause serious burns or weld the metal object to the terminals.
Warning To avoid electric shock, do not connect safety extra-low voltage (SELV)
circuits to telephone-network voltage (TNV) circuits. LAN ports contain SELV circuits,
and WAN ports contain TNV circuits. Both LAN and WAN ports may use RJ-45
connectors. Use caution when connecting cables.
Warning Hazardous network voltages are present in WAN ports regardless of whether
power to the router is OFF or ON. To avoid electric shock, use caution when working near
WAN ports. When detaching cables, detach the end away from the router first.
Warning Before opening the chassis, disconnect the telephone-network cables to avoid
contact with telephone-network voltages.
Warning Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of
lightning activity.
Warning Do not touch the power supply when the power cord is connected. For systems
with a power switch, line voltages are present within the power supply even when the
power switch is OFF and the power cord is connected. For systems without a power
switch, line voltages are present within the power supply when the power cord is
connected.

Cisco Network Modules Hardware Installation Guide
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Follow these guidelines when working on equipment powered by electricity:
•
Locate the emergency power-off switch in the room in which you are working. Then, if
an electrical accident occurs, you can quickly shut the power OFF.
•
•
Before working on the router, turn OFF the power and unplug the power cord.
Disconnect all power before doing the following:
— Installing or removing a router chassis
— Working near power supplies
•
•
•
Do not work alone if potentially hazardous conditions exist.
•
If an electrical accident occurs, proceed as follows:
Never assume that power is disconnected from a circuit. Always check.
Look carefully for possible hazards in your work area, such as moist floors, ungrounded
power extension cables, and missing safety grounds.
— Use caution; do not become a victim yourself.
— Turn OFF power to the router.
— If possible, send another person to get medical aid. Otherwise, determine the
condition of the victim and then call for help.
— Determine if the person needs rescue breathing or external cardiac compressions;
then take appropriate action.
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. It
occurs when electronic printed circuit cards are improperly handled and can result in
complete or intermittent failures. Always follow ESD prevention procedures when
removing and replacing cards. Ensure that the router chassis is electrically connected to
earth ground. Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap, ensuring that it makes good skin contact.
Connect the clip to an unpainted surface of the chassis frame to safely channel unwanted
Preparing to Install Network Modules 2-3
Required Tools and Equipment
ESD voltages to ground. To properly guard against ESD damage and shocks, the wrist strap
and cord must operate effectively. If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching
the metal part of the chassis.
Caution For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap, which
should be between 1 and 10 megohm (Mohm).
Required Tools and Equipment
You need the following tools and equipment to install a network module in a Cisco modular
router chassis slot:

You can install network modules in the chassis either before or after mounting the router,
whichever is more convenient.
Follow this procedure to install a network module:
Step 1
Turn OFF electrical power to the router. However, to channel electrostatic
discharge (ESD) voltages to ground, do not unplug the power cable. Remove all
network interface cables, including telephone cables, from the rear panel.
Installing Network Modules in Cisco Modular Routers 3-1
Installing a Network Module in a Modular Router Chassis Slot
The following warning applies to routers that use a DC power supply:
Warning Before performing any of the following procedures, ensure that power is
removed from the DC circuit. To ensure that all power is OFF, locate the circuit breaker
on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF
position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the OFF position.
Using either a number 1 Phillips screwdriver or a small flat-blade screwdriver,
remove the blank filler panel from the chassis slot where you plan to install the
module. Save the blank panel for future use.

Installing a WAN Interface Card in a Network Module Slot
Warning Do not insert a WAN interface card into a base module slot while power is ON
or network cables are connected.
Warning Before opening the chassis, disconnect the telephone-network cables to avoid
contact with telephone-network voltages.
Warning Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of
lightning activity.
Warning To avoid electric shock, do not insert a WAN interface card into a two-slot
module while power is ON or network cables are connected.
Note A WAN interface card can be installed in a module that is already installed in a
router. Before inserting a WAN interface card into a base module that is already installed
in the router chassis, you must turn OFF electrical power.
Note Do not install an Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) Basic Rate Interface
(BRI) WAN interface card or an ISDN BRI network module in the same chassis as an ISDN
Primary Rate Interface (PRI) network module, unless you are using Cisco IOS
Release 11.3(3)T or later. Earlier releases of Cisco IOS software do not support this
configuration.
Note Do not install a newer BRI WAN interface card in the same network module as an
older BRI WAN interface card. The easiest way to identify the newer and older cards is to
observe the LED placement: on the newer card, the B-channel LEDs are arranged
horizontally and on the older card, the B-channel LEDs are arranged vertically.

Ethernet Network Module Connectors
The 1-port Ethernet network module has a single port (Ethernet port 0) for one Ethernet
connection. The 4-port Ethernet network module has ports for four Ethernet connections.
(See Figure 4-2.) Ethernet port 0 uses either the attachment unit interface (AUI) (DB-15)
connector on the right side of the module or the 10BaseT (RJ-45) connector next to it. Only
one of these connectors can be active at a time. Ethernet ports 1, 2, and 3 on the 4-port
Ethernet module use 10BaseT connectors. These ports do not provide an AUI connector.
Active ports are identified in software by port type (Ethernet), the module’s slot number,
and the port number.
On port 0, the module detects the type of network connection automatically, and you do not
need to select the media type when you configure the software. If cables are plugged into
both the AUI connector and the 10BaseT connector for the same port, the 10BaseT
connection is selected.
Connecting Ethernet Ports
On Ethernet port 0 (the right port), you can connect either the Ethernet AUI connector or
the 10BaseT connector, but not both at the same time. Ports 1, 2, and 3 provide only a
10BaseT connector.

Connecting Ethernet Ports
AUI Connections
Use an Ethernet AUI cable to connect the AUI port on the 1-port or 4-port Ethernet network
module to an Ethernet transceiver. The female end of the AUI cable mates with the
slide-latch connector of the transceiver cable. Figure 4-3 shows a thin Ethernet transceiver
as an example, but you can use any type of Ethernet transceiver.

About Serial Connections
Serial connections are provided by the WAN interface cards and network modules. The
serial WAN interface card can be installed in either slot of a 2-slot module. For more
information on WAN interface cards, see the publication Cisco WAN Interface Cards
Hardware Installation Guide.
Before you connect a device to a serial port, you need to know the following:
•
Type of device, data terminal equipment (DTE) or data communications equipment
(DCE), you are connecting to the synchronous serial interface
•
•
Type of connector, male or female, required to connect to the device
Signaling standard required by the device

About Serial Connections
Serial DTE or DCE Devices
A device that communicates over a synchronous serial interface is either a DTE or DCE
device. A DCE device provides a clock signal that paces the communications between the
device and the router. A DTE device does not provide a clock signal. DTE devices usually
connect to DCE devices. The documentation that accompanied the device should indicate
whether it is a DTE or DCE device. (Some devices have a jumper to select either DTE or
DCE mode.) If you cannot find the information in the documentation, see Table 6-1 to help
you select the proper device type.

If pins protrude from the base of the connector, the
connector is male.
If the connector has holes to accept pins, the connector is
female.
CSU/DSU = channel service unit/data service unit.
Signaling Standards Supported
The synchronous serial ports available for the router support the following signaling
standards: EIA/TIA-232, EIA/TIA-449, V.35, X.21, and EIA-530. You can order a Cisco
DB-60 shielded serial transition cable that has the appropriate connector for the standard
you specify. The documentation for the device you want to connect should indicate the
standard used for that device. The router end of the shielded serial transition cable has a
DB-60 connector, which connects to the DB-60 port on a serial WAN interface card. The
other end of the serial transition cable is available with the connector appropriate for the
standard you specify.
6-2
Cisco Network Modules Hardware Installation Guide
Distance Limitations
The synchronous serial port can be configured as DTE or DCE (except EIA-530, which is
DTE only), depending on the attached cable. To order a shielded cable, contact customer
service. (See the Cisco Information Packet publication that came with your router.)
Note All serial ports configured as DTE require external clocking from a CSU/DSU or
other DCE device.
Although manufacturing your own serial cables is not recommended (because of the small
size of the pins on the DB-60 serial connector), cable pinouts are provided in the online
document Cisco Modular Access Router Cable Specifications. This document is located on
the Documentation CD-ROM that accompanied your router, and on Cisco Connection
Online.
Distance Limitations
Serial signals can travel a limited distance at any given bit rate; generally, the slower the
data rate, the greater the distance. All serial signals are subject to distance limits, beyond
which a signal degrades significantly or is completely lost.
Table 6-2 lists the recommended maximum speeds and distances for each serial interface
type; however, if you understand potential electrical problems and compensate for them,
you may get good results at speeds and distances greater than those listed. For instance, the
recommended maximum rate for V.35 is 2 Mbps, but 4 Mbps is commonly used.

Balanced drivers allow EIA/TIA-449 signals to travel greater distances than EIA/TIA-232
signals. The recommended distance limits for EIA/TIA-449 shown in Table 6-2 are also
valid for V.35, X.21, and EIA-530. Typically, EIA/TIA-449 and EIA-530 support 2-Mbps
rates, and V.35 can support 4-Mbps rates.
Asynchronous/Synchronous Serial Module Baud Rates
The following baud-rate limitations apply to the slow-speed serial interfaces found in the
Asynchronous/Synchronous serial modules:
•
The maximum baud rate on the slow-speed asynchronous interface is 115.2 kbps. The
traffic throughput rate allowed will be full 115.2 kbps with 10 percent of traffic in the
opposite direction.
•
The maximum baud rate for the slow-speed synchronous interface is 128 kbps full
duplex.
Connecting Asynchronous Network Modules to
Asynchronous Devices
An asynchronous network module provides two or four 68-pin receptacles. Each receptacle
connects to asynchronous devices by means of an octal cable that provides a 68-pin plug at
the module end and eight connectors at the network end, one for each of the eight
EIA/TIA-232 serial ports. Depending on the type of cable, the network end consists of
either RJ-45 plugs or male DB-25 connectors. RJ-45-to-DB-25 adapters are also available.

Asynchronous Network Modules Interface Numbering
Ports are numbered from right to left and from bottom to top, as labeled on the module’s
rear panel. (See the “Asynchronous Network Modules Interface Numbering” section on
page 6-5.)
Octal cables are not provided with the network module. For ordering information, see the
“Cisco Connection Online” section on page xiv.
Use an octal cable, and adapters if necessary, to connect each of the modules’s 68-pin
receptacles to one or more asynchronous modems, terminals, or other devices. (See
Figure 6-1.)

Asynchronous Network Modules Interface Numbering
Certain Cisco IOS configuration commands identify asynchronous ports by an interface
number (or a line number, which is the same as the interface number). The interface number
of a port on a asynchronous network module is related to the slot number where the module
is installed and the unit number of the port in the module.

Cisco 3600 Series 16-Port and 32-Port Interface Numbering
Cisco 3600 series routers slot numbers begin at 0 at the bottom right of the chassis, as
viewed from the rear. For example, Cisco 3620 router slots are numbered 0 and 1, as shown
in Figure 6-2. In Cisco 3640 routers, the bottom row of slots is numbered 0 and 1 and the
top row is numbered 2 and 3, as shown in Figure 6-3.

Cisco 3600 Series 16-Port and 32-Port Interface Numbering
Ports in the 16-port and 32-port asynchronous network modules correspond to the outputs
of the octal cables that connect the module to the network. These ports are numbered in the
same pattern as slot numbers, beginning at 0 at the lower right and continuing from right to
left and (in the 32-port module) from bottom to top. In the 16-port module, the right
connector provides ports 0 to 7, and the left connector provides ports 8 to 15, as labeled on
the module’s rear panel. In the 32-port module, the connectors in the bottom row provide
ports 0 to 7 and 8 to 15, and the connectors in the top row provide ports 16 to 23 and 24
to 31.
The interface number of a port is determined using the following:
interface-number = (32 x slot-number) + unit-number + 1
For example, asynchronous port 12 in slot 1 corresponds to interface number (32 x 1) +
12 + 1 = 45. This is also the line number for the port. Port 12 in slot 1 is always assigned
interface number 45, regardless of whether the module in slot 0 is a 16-port asynchronous
module, a 32-port asynchronous module, or some other type of module entirely, or even
whether there is a network module in slot 0 at all. If you move the module in slot 1 to a
different slot, however, its interface numbers change.
Table 6-3 shows the range of interface numbers available for each type of asynchronous
network module in each Cisco 3600 series router slot. (Interface 0 is automatically assigned
to the console.)

Asynchronous Network Modules Interface Numbering
Cisco 2600 Series Asynchronous Port Interface Numbering
Interface numbering for Cisco 2600 series routers differs from Cisco 3600 series interface
numbering in the following ways:
•
WAN interface card slot numbers always appear as slot 0, even if the interface card is
installed in the slot labeled W1.
•
WAN interface cards are numbered dynamically, starting with the first card installed.
For example,
— If slot W0 is empty and slot W1 contains a 1-port serial WAN interface card, the
interface number would be serial 0/0.
— If slot W0 contains a 2-port serial WAN interface card and slot W1 contains a 1-port
serial interface card, serial 0/0 and 0/1 would reside in slot W0 and serial 0/2 would
reside in slot W1.
4-Port and 8-Port Interface Numbering
Existing 4-port and 8-port asynchronous/synchronous network modules, when configured
for asynchronous operation under Cisco IOS releases prior to 11.2(7)P, use a different
interface numbering algorithm:
interface-number = (16 x slot-number) + unit-number + 1
Table 6-4 shows the numbers available under this numbering scheme. These interface
numbers create potential conflicts with the numbers assigned to 16-port and 32-port
asynchronous modules: it would be possible for a 16-port or 32-port asynchronous module
in one slot to overlap the interface numbers of a 4-port or 8-port asynchronous/synchronous
module in another slot.

To prevent this conflict, Cisco IOS Release 11.2(7)P, which is required to operate 16-port
and 32-port asynchronous network modules, checks when it boots for the presence of
4-port and 8-port asynchronous/synchronous network modules configured as
asynchronous. If if finds any, it rewrites the starting configuration in nonvolatile random
access memory (NVRAM), if necessary, to adopt the new line numbering scheme for these
modules, as shown in Table 6-5.

Connecting the 4-Port Serial Module to a Network
The 4-port serial network module provides four universal high-density 60-pin receptacles.
The serial cable attached to each receptacle determines the port’s electrical interface type
and mode, data terminal equipment (DTE) or data communications equipment (DCE).
Types of Serial Cables
Cisco Systems offers five types of serial cables (also called serial adapter cables or
transition cables):

•
•
•
V.35 Serial Cable Assembly
X.21 Serial Cable Assembly
EIA-530 Serial Cable Assembly
All serial cables provide a universal plug at the network module end. The network end of
each cable provides the physical connectors most commonly used for the interface. For
example, the network end of the EIA/TIA-232 serial cable is a DB-25 connector, the most
widely used EIA/TIA-232 connector.
All serial interface types except EIA-530 are available in DTE or DCE format: DTE with a
plug connector at the network end and DCE with a receptacle at the network end. V.35 is
available in either mode with either gender at the network end. EIA-530 is available in DTE
only.
Serial cables are not provided with the network module. For ordering information, see the
“Cisco Connection Online” section on page xiv.
Connecting the Module to the Network
After you install a 4-port serial module, use the appropriate serial cable to connect each of
the module’s DB-60 serial ports to a synchronous modem, channel service unit/data service
unit (CSU/DSU), or other DCE equipment. (See Figure 6-5.)

Connecting ISDN BRI Network
Modules to a Network
This chapter describes how to connect Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) Basic
Rate Interface (BRI) network modules in Cisco modular routers, and describes the
following:
•
•
•
Upgrading ISDN BRI Network Modules on page 7-1
4-Port and 8-Port ISDN BRI S/T Network Modules on page 7-3
4-Port and 8-Port ISDN BRI U Network Modules on page 7-6
Unless specifically identified, references to BRI modules in this chapter include all ISDN
BRI network modules.
Note Do not install an ISDN BRI network module in the same chassis as an ISDN Primary
Rate Interface (PRI) network module, unless you are using Cisco IOS Release 11.3(3)T or
later. Earlier Cisco IOS releases do not support this configuration.
Upgrading ISDN BRI Network Modules
If your Cisco 3600 series router contains an ISDN BRI network module (product numbers:
NM-4B-S/T, NM-4B-U, NM-8B-S/T, NM-8B-U) and a digital modem network module
(product numbers: NM-6DM, NM-12DM, NM-18DM, NM-24DM, NM-30DM), your
ISDN BRI network module has to be upgraded to the minimum version shown in Table 7-1.
Earlier versions of the ISDN BRI network module cannot send modem calls to the digital
modem network module.
Connecting ISDN BRI Network Modules to a Network 7-1
Upgrading ISDN BRI Network Modules
Table 7-1
ISDN BRI Network Module Upgrade Versions
Module
Minimum Version
NM-4B-S/T
800-01236-03
NM-4B-U
800-01238-06
NM-8B-S/T
800-01237-03
NM-8B-U
800-01239-06
If the BRI module is the wrong revision, you see a message similar to this one when the
router boots:
The BRI network module in slot 0 is incompatible with the digital modems
installed in the router.
To determine the revision level, you can examine the network module itself (outside the
router), or use the Cisco IOS show diag command. The label on the module board should
show a part number beginning with 800- and ending with -03 or -06. A BRI S/T module
whose part number ends with -01 or -02 needs to be upgraded, as does a BRI U module
whose part number is lower than -06.
The output of the show diag command looks similar to the following:

CT1/PRI modules are available with or without a built-in channel service unit (CSU) and
with one or two ports. The CT1/PRI modules connect to an external CSU, whereas the
CT1/PRI-CSU modules connect directly to the network. Each T1 module provides up to 24
virtual channels per T1 port, and each virtual channel is presented to the system as a serial
interface that can be configured individually. The T1 interface is the physical medium that
supports ISDN PRI.

1-Port and 2-Port Channelized E1/ISDN PRI Balanced (120-ohm) Network Modules
The CE1/PRI modules are available with one or two E1 ports and with balanced or
unbalanced interfaces. CE1/PRI modules receive and transmit data bidirectionally at the E1
rate of 2.048 Mbps and provide up to 30 virtual channels per E1 port. Each of the virtual
channels is presented to the system as a serial interface that can be configured individually.
The E1 interface is the physical media that supports ISDN PRI.
CE1/PRI Module Jumper Settings
Jumpers on the CE1/PRI modules can be used to connect or disconnect receive shield to
ground. (See Table 8-3.) The default setting for balanced, 120-ohm CE1/PRI-B modules
disconnects receive shield to ground. The default setting for unbalanced, 75-ohm
CE1/PRI-U modules connects receive shield to ground. If you are experiencing ground
loop problems with E1 cabling, you may want to try changing the jumper settings in the
module.

2-Channel and 4-Channel Voice Network Modules
This section explains how to connect 2-channel and 4-channel voice network
modules—(Cisco part numbers NM-1V and NM-2V) in Cisco modular routers. (See
Figure 9-1 and Figure 9-2.)
You need both a voice network module and a voice interface card for a voice connection.
You can install one voice interface card in a 2-channel voice network module, and two voice
interface cards in a 4-channel module. At least one other network module or WAN interface
card must be installed in the router to provide the connection to the IP LAN or WAN.
WAN and voice interface cards are described in the Cisco WAN Interface Cards Hardware
Installation Guide publication.

network modules (Cisco product numbers NM-6DM, NM-12DM, NM-18DM, NM-24DM,
NM-30DM) for Cisco modular routers. (See Figure 10-1.) These modules contain 6, 12,
18, 24, or 30 V.34+ digital modems for a direct digital connection to an Integrated Services
Digital Network (ISDN) Primary Rate Interface (PRI) or Basic Rate Interface (BRI)
channel, allowing you to mix digital and analog calls to provide remote access to a LAN.

Digital modem network modules do not provide network interfaces of their own, but
instead handle analog calls passing through other router interfaces. In addition to the digital
modem module, the router must contain a PRI or BRI network module to connect to the
ISDN channel, and another module, such as Ethernet, to provide connectivity to the LAN.
The PRI or BRI module concurrently handles digital ISDN data connections and remote
voice-channel (analog) modem connections, allowing a dynamic mix of digital and modem
connections. The digital modem module acts as a pool of available modems that can be
used for both incoming and outgoing calls.
Caution Digital modem network modules require Cisco IOS Release 11.2(9)XA or
11.2(10)P or later. The PRI module must be hardware revision -03; the BRI S/T module
must be hardware revision -03, and the BRI U module must be hardware revision -06.
Earlier revisions of these network modules are incompatible with digital modem modules.
The digital modems support all standard data rates from 300 bps through 33.6 kbps
(V.34 bis); V.42 bis and MNP 5 data compression; and V.42, LAPM, and MNP 4 error
correction.
Each digital modem module contains from one to five banks of 6-port modem ISDN
channel aggregation (MICA) modules. You can add modems to a module, in groups of six,
by installing additional MICA modules (Cisco product number MICA-6MOD=), up to a
maximum of 30 modems.
10-2
Cisco Network Modules Hardware Installation Guide
Hardware Requirements
Hardware Requirements
In addition to the digital modem module, the router must contain a PRI or BRI network
module to connect to the ISDN channel, and another module, such as Ethernet, to provide
connectivity to the LAN.
Note The PRI module (Cisco product number NM-1CT1, NM-2CT1, NM-1CT1-CSU,
NM-2CT1-CSU, NM-1CE1B, NM-2CE1B, NM-1CE1U, or NM-2CE1U) must be revision
level -03.
The BRI S/T module with Cisco part number NM-4B-S/T or NM-8B-S/T must be revision
level -03, and the BRI U module with Cisco product number NM-4B-U or NM-8B-U must
be revision level -06.
If the PRI or BRI module is the wrong revision, you see a message similar to this one when
the router boots:
The T1 or E1 network module in slot 0 is incompatible with the digital
modems installed in the router.
To determine the revision level, you can examine the network module itself (outside the
router), or use the Cisco IOS show diag command. The label on the module board should
show a part number beginning with 800- and ending with -03 or -06. A PRI or BRI S/T
module whose part number ends with -01 or -02 needs to be upgraded, as does a BRI U
module whose part number is lower than -06.
The output of the show diag command looks similar to the following:

Interface Numbering
Interface Numbering
Individual digital modem ports are not physically distinct, but Cisco IOS software
identifies each modem uniquely through its slot number and a port number.
In Cisco 3600 series routers, slot numbers begin at 0 at the bottom right of the chassis, as
viewed from the rear. In Cisco 3640 routers, the bottom row of slots is numbered 0 and 1
and the top row is numbered 2 and 3, as shown in Figure 10-2.

Each digital modem module can hold up to five banks of MICA modules, numbered 0 to 4
from left to right (as viewed from the rear of the router). Each MICA module holds six
modems, which are assigned modem numbers 0 to 5.
Each modem in a digital modem module is also assigned a port number in the range 0 to
29. Modems in the left MICA module (as viewed from the rear of the router), bank 0, are
assigned port numbers 0 to 5. Additional MICA modules, if present, are assigned the port
numbers shown in Table 10-1.

This relation can be expressed as:
port-number = (6 x bank-number) + modem-number
For example, the third modem (modem 2) in the second MICA module from the left
(bank 1) is assigned port number (6 x 1) + 2 = 8.
Some Cisco IOS commands identify ports by interface number (or line number or TTY
number, which are the same as the interface number) rather than slot and port number. The
interface number of a modem port is related to its slot and port number in the following
way:
interface-number = (32 x slot-number) + port-number + 1
This can also be expressed as:
interface-number = (32 x slot-number) + ((6 x bank-number) + modem-number) + 1
For example, if the module containing the modem in the last example is placed in slot 2,
the modem is assigned interface number (32 x 2) + ([6 x 1] + 2) + 1 = (32 x 2) + 8 + 1 = 73.
This is also the line and TTY number for the port. The modem in this position is always
assigned interface 73, whether or not there are other MICA modules in the digital modem
network module or other digital modem network modules in the router chassis. If you move
the MICA module to a different position in the digital modem network module, however,
or move the digital modem network module to a different slot in the router chassis, the
interface number changes.
Table 10-2 shows the range of interface numbers available in each router slot. Interface 0 is
automatically assigned to the console.

MICA modules are manufactured with a polarization notch to ensure proper orientation,
and alignment holes that fit over guide posts to ensure proper positioning. (See
Figure 10-3.)

Caution To avoid damaging electrostatic discharge (ESD)-sensitive components,
observe all ESD precautions when handling MICA modules. To avoid damaging the
network module or the MICA module, avoid excessive force when you remove or replace
MICA modules.
To remove, replace, or install a MICA module, you must first remove the digital modem
module from the router chassis.

Adding 6-Port MICA Modules to a Digital Modem Network Module
Removing the Digital Modem Network Module
Caution Network modules do not support online insertion and removal (hot swap). To
avoid damaging the module, before you remove a network module from a chassis slot, you
must turn OFF electrical power and disconnect network cables.
Follow this procedure to remove a digital modem network module:
Step 1
Turn OFF electrical power to the router. However, to channel ESD voltages to
ground, do not unplug the power cable. Remove all network interface cables,
including telephone cables, from the rear panel.
The following warning applies to routers that use a DC power supply:
Warning Before performing any of the following procedures, ensure that power is
removed from the DC circuit. To ensure that all power is OFF, locate the circuit breaker
on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF
position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the OFF position.
10-8
Step 2
Loosen the module’s captive mounting screws, using a Phillips or flat-blade
screwdriver.
Step 3
Hold the captive screws between two fingers, and pull the network module
toward you until it slides free of the chassis. (See Figure 10-4.)
Step 4
Set the network module on an ESD-preventive mat.

Removing 6-Port MICA Modules
To remove a MICA module from the digital modem network module, follow these steps:
Step 1
Orient the digital modem network module so that the faceplate is on the right.
Caution Handle MICA modules by the card edges only. MICA modules are
ESD-sensitive components and can be damaged by mishandling.
Step 2
Remove one MICA module at a time, beginning with the one farthest from you.
Step 3
To lift the MICA module out of its socket, pull the spring clips on both sides
outward (see Figure 10-5) and tilt the MICA module away from you until it is
free of the clips (see Figure 10-6).
Step 4
Hold the MICA module by the edges with your thumb and index finger and lift
it out of the socket. (See Figure 10-7.) Place the removed MICA module in an
antistatic bag to protect it from ESD damage.
Step 5
Repeat Step 2 through Step 4 for any remaining MICA modules that you want
to remove.

Step 2
Hold the MICA module with the connector edge at the bottom and the
polarization notch at the right.
Step 3
Tilting the MICA module toward you at about a 45-degree angle, insert it into a
socket, beginning with the empty socket closest to you. (See Figure 10-8.) Rock
it downward, using the minimum amount of force required. (See Figure 10-9.)
When the MICA module is properly seated, the socket guide posts fit through
the alignment holes, and the spring clips click into place.
Step 4
Ensure that the MICA module is straight and that the alignment holes line up
with the plastic guides on the socket. It is normal to feel some resistance, but do
not use excessive force on the MICA module, and do not touch the surface
components.
Step 5
Repeat Step 2 through Step 4 for any additional MICA modules.

Reinstalling the Digital Modem Network Module
When you finish installing MICA modules, replace the digital modem network module in
the router chassis, following the procedure in Chapter 3, “Installing Network Modules in
Cisco Modular Routers.”
Digital Modem Module LEDs
All network modules have an enable (EN) LED. (See Figure 10-10.) This LED indicates
that the module has passed its self-tests and is available to the router.
Digital modem modules have five additional LEDs, one for each MICA module bank. The
LEDs blink during initialization. After the enable LED comes on, the MICA module LEDs
indicate that the corresponding MICA module is functioning. If a MICA module fails its
diagnostics, or if no MICA module is installed in a position, its LED remains off.

Supported Network Protocols
The analog modems described in this chapter support the following protocols:
•
•
•
•
•
All standard data rates from 300 bps to 33.6 kbps (V.34 bis)
V.42 bis and MNP 5 data compression
V.42, LAPM, and MNP 2 to 4 error correction
MNP 10 for high performance under all line conditions
MNP 10EC for high performance in analog cellular environments
Interface Numbering
Cisco IOS software identifies each modem uniquely by its slot number and a port number.
Some Cisco IOS configuration commands identify asynchronous ports by an interface
number (or a line number, which is the same as the interface number). The interface number
of a port on an 8-port or 16-port analog modem network module is related to the slot
number where the module is installed and the number of the port in the module.
Cisco 3600 series router slot numbers begin at 0 at the bottom right of the chassis, as
viewed from the rear. Cisco 3620 router slots are numbered 0 and 1, as shown in
Figure 11-3. Cisco 3640 routers have two rows of slots. The bottom row is numbered 0 and
1 and the top row is numbered 2 and 3, as shown in Figure 11-4.
The Cisco 2600 series router’s single network module slot is always 1, as shown in
Figure 11-5.

Ports in the 8-port and 16-port analog modem network modules are numbered in the same
pattern as slot numbers, beginning at 0 at the lower right and continuing from right to left
and (in the 16-port module) from bottom to top.
The interface number of a port is determined in the following way:
interface-number = (32 x slot-number) + port-number + 1
For example, modem port 12 in slot 1 corresponds to interface number (32 x 1) + 12 + 1 =
45. This is also the line number for the port. Port 12 in slot 1 is always assigned interface
number 45, regardless of whether the module in slot 0 is an 8-port analog modem network
module, a 16-port analog modem module, or some other kind of module entirely, or even
whether there is a network module in slot 0 at all. If you move the module from slot 1 to a
different slot, however, its interface numbers change.
Table 11-1 shows the range of interface numbers available for each type of analog modem
network module in each router slot. (Interface 0 is automatically assigned to the console.)

The HSSI module contains a 50-pin receptacle, color-coded blue. You can connect this port
to a network in one of two ways:
13-2
•
To an external data service unit (DSU), using a HSSI data terminal equipment (DTE)
cable for operation in DTE mode. (See Figure 13-2.) The HSSI port is configured to
operate in this mode by default.
•
To another router for back-to-back operation, using a HSSI null modem cable.
(See Figure 13-3.) Both routers must be at the same site. Back-to-back operation allows
you to verify operation of the HSSI port or link routers directly to build a larger node.
Both routers must be configured to use a 51.84-MHz internal clock.
